The beer being sold at £2 a pint was due to the barrel coming towards its best before date and so the club were trying to flog it.


That says something itself

Yes, it does, it says that,

Well can you allude to what you know then, obviously, being either a bar manager, cellar man or committee member or are you perhaps, just trying to throw a bit of fuel on the fire?

Well attended EGM today with a new committee voted in. Tough couple of months ahead but things looking very positive.

I’m not trying to fuel anything, I wish them all the luck in the world, both billingham clubs have got some great people involved and they have always been very welcoming.
But yes I’ve been a bar manager, cellar man and committee member, and if a keg of beer is getting to be out of date then it paints its own picture.

What picture does it paint. The punters just haven't bought enough. Selling cheap beer is hardly a sign the clubs in meltdown.

Good luck to Billingham Town but not sure a joint Billingham side is on the cards though.

Perhaps they bought it in and the punters didn't like it, perhaps there were cheaper drinks on offer, perhaps, "IF" my auntie had balls she'd be my uncle....

Carling would be the best seller in the bar, it would have a sell-by date of 6 to 8 weeks, it contains 88 pints, so if you can't sell 88 pints in 6 to 8 weeks, the bar would be losing a lot of money

It paints the picture that there isn’t much trade in the place!

Thank you, that’s the point I was making.

No gripes at all and no mountains out of molehills, just simple facts

the simple fact is England you would start an argument in a telephone box with just you in it!!

Every time a club has a problem you rear that ugly head of yours.

But you haven't stated any "facts" England, just merely your thoughts and conjecture, I have no doubt you have all NL football close to your heart because usually you are knowledgeable and talk sense, but on this occasion you are expressing an opinion, which could be right, or could be wrong, but the "fact" that a club official has stated on here the real reason is good enough for me, and, by the way, probably most others. :roll:

Great post off the new chairmen but all that positive talk and never once explained why the beer was £2 a pint. How dare he!

Again good luck to Billy Town seems like they've a challenge on their hands.
